Verse 6:1

اَلۡحَمۡدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِىۡ خَلَقَ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضَ وَجَعَلَ الظُّلُمٰتِ وَالنُّوۡرَ  ؕ ثُمَّ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا بِرَبِّهِمۡ يَعۡدِلُوۡنَ‏

All praise in word and action belongs to God, Who created the heavens and earth, and appointed darkness and light. (All things in the Universe are witness to, and manifest His glory.) Yet those who reject the truth hold others as equal with their Lord

Verse 6:2

هُوَ الَّذِىۡ خَلَقَكُمۡ مِّنۡ طِيۡنٍ ثُمَّ قَضٰۤى اَجَلًا  ؕ وَاَجَلٌ مُّسَمًّى عِنۡدَهٗ​ ثُمَّ اَنۡـتُمۡ تَمۡتَرُوۡنَ‏

He is the One Who created you from inorganic matter, and decreed a term for you, a term known to Him. It is determined according to His laws, for individuals (3:144, 56:60) and nations (7:34, 10:49, 13:38). Yet you keep doubting and arguing about Him.

Verse 6:3

وَهُوَ اللّٰهُ فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَفِى الۡاَرۡضِ​ؕ يَعۡلَمُ سِرَّكُمۡ وَ جَهۡرَكُمۡ وَيَعۡلَمُ مَا تَكۡسِبُوۡنَ‏

He is God in the heavens as well as on earth. He knows all that you keep secret as well as all that you do openly and He knows what you earn (by your deeds).

Verse 6:4

وَمَا تَاۡتِيۡهِمۡ مِّنۡ اٰيَةٍ مِّنۡ اٰيٰتِ رَبِّهِمۡ اِلَّا كَانُوۡا عَنۡهَا مُعۡرِضِيۡنَ‏

Yet whenever a message from the revelations of their Lord came to them, they turned away from it.

Verse 6:5

فَقَدۡ كَذَّبُوۡا بِالۡحَـقِّ لَـمَّا جَآءَهُمۡ​ؕ فَسَوۡفَ يَاۡتِيۡهِمۡ اَنۢۡـبٰٓـؤُا مَا كَانُوۡا بِهٖ يَسۡتَهۡزِءُوۡنَ‏

And so they are denying this truth as it has come to them. However, soon they will come to understand what they used to ridicule.

Verse 6:6

اَلَمۡ يَرَوۡا كَمۡ اَهۡلَـكۡنَا مِنۡ قَبۡلِهِمۡ مِّنۡ قَرۡنٍ مَّكَّنّٰهُمۡ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ مَا لَمۡ نُمَكِّنۡ لَّـكُمۡ وَاَرۡسَلۡنَا السَّمَآءَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ مِّدۡرَارًا وَّجَعَلۡنَا الۡاَنۡهٰرَ تَجۡرِىۡ مِنۡ تَحۡتِهِمۡ فَاَهۡلَكۡنٰهُمۡ بِذُنُوۡبِهِمۡ وَاَنۡشَاۡنَا مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِهِمۡ قَرۡنًا اٰخَرِيۡنَ‏

Do they not see how many a generation We (Our law) annihilated before them? We had established them on earth better than We have established you, and We shed on them abundant showers from the sky, and made the rivers flow beneath them. But, when they trailed behind in humanity, We (Our law) annihilated them and raised after them another generation.

Verse 6:7

وَلَوۡ نَزَّلۡنَا عَلَيۡكَ كِتٰبًا فِىۡ قِرۡطَاسٍ فَلَمَسُوۡهُ بِاَيۡدِيۡهِمۡ لَقَالَ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡۤا اِنۡ هٰذَاۤ اِلَّا سِحۡرٌ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏

Even if We had sent down to you (O Prophet) a pre-printed book written on parchment, so that they could feel it with their hands, the rejecters would have said, ""This is nothing but obvious magic!""

Verse 6:8

وَقَالُوۡا لَوۡلَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ عَلَيۡهِ مَلَكٌ​ ؕ وَلَوۡ اَنۡزَلۡـنَا مَلَـكًا لَّـقُضِىَ الۡاَمۡرُ ثُمَّ لَا يُنۡظَرُوۡنَ‏

They ask, ""Why is not an angel sent down to him (for them to see)?"" Well, if We did send down an angel, the matter would be judged at once. And no further time would be granted them after that. [Angels to be seen are sent only when the period of respite is over. 16:33, 25:22]

Verse 6:9

وَلَوۡ جَعَلۡنٰهُ مَلَـكًا لَّـجَـعَلۡنٰهُ رَجُلًا وَّلَـلَبَسۡنَا عَلَيۡهِمۡ مَّا يَلۡبِسُوۡنَ‏

And even if We sent an angel, We would certainly have made him in the form of a man. And We (per our law) would have kept them just as confused as they are confused now. [It would not fulfill their demand of seeing an angel as a Messenger]

Verse 6:10

وَلَـقَدِ اسۡتُهۡزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِّنۡ قَبۡلِكَ فَحَاقَ بِالَّذِيۡنَ سَخِرُوۡا مِنۡهُمۡ مَّا كَانُوۡا بِهٖ يَسۡتَهۡزِءُوۡنَ‏

Messengers before you have been mocked. But the very thing they used to mock surrounded them in the end, for their ridiculing.
